Hello

I am searching for suggestions of English, Welsh, Old Timey.....Appalachian Christmas folk songs/carols for children/family audience. I am working on performances I do using guitar, accordion, concertina, tin whistle.....puppetry, crankie shows, whimsical props.......limberjacks etc.
Excited to get suggestions!
Any help would be so greatly appreciated! Much thanks!

Rose

You can't do better than to check out --
* Ruth Crawford Seeger's "American Folk Songs for Christmas", along with the Rounder 2-CD set with Seeger family singing all of the songs.
* The Revels Christmas Songbook.

I'm going to assume that you can read music.

You're looking for music which is old-fashioned, is not too solemn or reverent, and is public domain. How do these sound?

Up on the housetop
O come, little children
JIngle Bells
Santa Claus is coming to town (check. is this PD?)
I saw three ships
Angels we have heard on high
Away in a manger
God rest ye merry, gentlemen
Joy to the world
Twelve days of Christmas (prob. need to shorten it)


Your public library may be a good source.

Next I will put in a link to a delightful new song. You should get permission.
